seventeen

I turned seventeen last Thursday.  My lack of posting should tell you that I've been busy celebrating, working, and doing school.  And I'm okay with that, because this seventeenth birthday was one of the best.  From being surprised by my three friends to a family party four days later, and so many notes/cards/emails in between, it was a good birthday.  (Best birthday present?  An Iphone!  Follow me on instagram:  @shesoliviag)

I am incredibly loved and so thankful for the friends and family I have here, right now.  So I'm learning to rejoice and celebrate life with them.  (And I like it, a lot.)  Life right now is simple, and I am content, but busy.  I haven't picked up my camera for almost two weeks.  I haven't blogged for a week.  But, I have had time to spend with people I love, and with a Savior who is drawing me nearer to Him.  This is how I want to live life and I'm enjoying it to the fullest!
p.s. Thank you for all your sweet comments on my last post!
